Even though we might have our favorite picked out, there are certainly some “celebs” that stick out more than others — as they seem like an odd choice for the show!
Remember Paula Deen last season?
Donald Trump‘s ex-wife Marla Maples — to whom the businessman was married for six years and with whom he has one daughter Tiffany Trump — was definitely an interesting selection for the show.
Then again, when you’re in your 22nd season, you’ve gotta stretch the definition of “star” sometimes!
While Trump has mainly been known to run his mouth and say absolutely AWFUL things about people — and often entire groups of people — the politician had some kind words for his former spouse as he told People:
“I think it is wonderful. I am very happy for her and think she will do very well.”
Awww, there is a little love buried deep in that icy black heart! LOLz!
As for the 52-year-old’s thoughts on the show distracting her from her ex’s wild presidential campaign, she said:
“When life gets challenging, you just have to dance right? It’s amazing.”
Marla will be making her debut on the dancing competition show with her partner Tony Dovolani when the show premieres on March 21 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC!
Who will you be rooting for this season?!
